KlenzPod, a new wet wipe dispensing system that addresses the lack of adequate dispensing systems available for public use of wipes, received the inaugural WOW Innovation Award presented as part of the second annual World of Wipes (WOW) Conference, June 16-18, 2008 at The Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago, Ill.

The WOW Conference, organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, is devoted solely to wipes, with a concentration on substrates, active ingredients, packaging, market metrics, industry challenges and market opportunities, particularly in Asia and Europe. The WOW Awards recognize and reward the industry members who bring new and value-added processes and products to the wipes market.

Following presentations by the six finalists, attendees at the WOW Conference voted the KlenzPod system as the recipient of the 2008 Award. The innovation in the KlenzPod system is the NippleNozzle, which allows only one wipe to be pulled from the dispenser every time.

This prevents moisture loss and eliminates unnecessary waste by using more than one wipe at a time. The dispenser can also be mounted securely to walls, medical trolleys, bathroom stalls and changing stations in office facilities, hotels or restaurants.

“The KlenzPod is receiving enthusiastic acceptance from those who would like to install them where appearance is of critical importance in addition to functionality,” said Mick Gordon, inventor of KlenzPod. “Everyone who sees them loves them, both potential users and purchasers alike, so we hope we can come to an agreement with a major manufacturer in the near future and get the product out to a very eager public as soon as possible.”

The five other finalists, chosen from products nominated by the industry earlier this year, are:

Ahlstrom — Natural Choice Flushable Wet Wipe. Made from Hydraspun dispersible fabric, the wipe, which was launched in Wal-Mart Stores in late 2006, breaks apart when flushed and reduces the chance for blockages in home and waste management systems.

Care Dynamics — Care Dynamics Handwashing Towelette. This high-tech, soap-impregnated dry towelette has a unique system that features a water- and time-activated indicator that informs the user that hands have been washed for adequate time to be effective.

Method Products — Bamboo Household Cleaning Wipes. Method has replaced its traditional household cleaning wipe with this 100% bamboo nonwoven wiper in a flexible package with a custom flip-top, improving the environmental footprint of the product.

Polytex — AquaPuff Expandable Ink. AquaPuff is an expandable ink that will grow when heat is introduced to the substrate, thereby amplifying the characteristics of the wipe.

Rockline/Strateline — Environmentally Sensitive Baby Wipe. This environmentally friendly baby wipe is made with 75% regenerated cotton sourced from white T-shirt trimmings. It also features an eco-friendly solution with ingredients made from renewable plant sources.

The six finalists gave 15-minute presentations during WOW and attendees then voted on the recipient of the 2008 WOW Innovation Award. The Award was presented during a session on the final morning of the Conference.
